Head Of Biden's 'Ministry Of Truth' Previously Compared Free Speech To
"Fairy Dust"


The head of what has been dubbed the Biden administration’s ‘Ministry
of Truth’ previously compared free speech to “fairy dust” during
testimony about social media censorship in front of the UK Parliament.

Yes, really.

Nina Jankowicz, recently appointed DHS ‘disinformation czar,’ made the
comments while providing oral evidence regarding the implementation of
the UK’s controversial Online Safety Bill, which will ban legal
content which has “the potential to cause harm.”

After agreeing that the government should set minimum speech standards
which ban “misogyny,” Jankowicz blasted alternative social media
platforms for supporting “freedom of expression and fairy dust.”

She also said that government-connected communications regulators such
as Ofcom should “be able to establish the minimum standards that would
be applied to all platforms and incur fines.”

    “That could be based, again, on the preexisting terms of service,”
she added.

Jankowicz also endorsed empowering governments to demand data on
individual users from social media cites for the purpose of
implementing further censorship policies.

    “The social media platforms can do that if they are compelled to,” she said.

Jankowicz also asserted that social media platforms should utilize
algorithms that would “allow us to get around some of the free speech
concerns” by demoting content so few people saw it.

    “You can shout in the black void, but you do not get a huge
audience to do that,” she stated.

The comments are in line with previously statements made by Jankowicz
when she revealed that free speech made her “shudder” while also
promoting the lie that the Hunter Biden laptop story was Russian

The disinformation czar also ludicrously cited Christopher Steele as
an expert on disinformation. Steele was the author of the infamous
Clinton campaign-funded Trump ‘peegate’ dossier’ that turned out to be
an actual product of disinformation.

As we previously highlighted, Jankowicz previously demanded that
“trustworthy verified people” like her be given the power to edit
other people’s tweets, making Twitter more like Wikipedia.
